The article focuses on the performance of stock trading in the U.S., as of June 12, 2006. Stocks tried to rally later in the week as investors found it hard to resist the bargain prices of stocks left in the wake of a three-day sell-off, which ripped more than 300 points off of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The WWD Composite Stock Index shed 1.9 percent on Friday, while the Standard & Poor 500 Index lost 2.8 percent.
